Will the Elheim late '60s ARVN figures serve as proxies for U.S. Army troops? I'd like to use Elheim for most of the figures for my Vietnam war project, but their range seems very limited.

Thanks much for any advice,
Tom

For the most part, but the eyes and noses are different.

They're also smaller in stature – but IMO that's not a bad thing. I wish figure heights weren't so uniform. I wasn't the only sawed off little SOB in my unit, that's for sure. ;)

Thanks for the help, guys!

I guess I'll do some more research to see what other manufacturers make comparable ranges.

Cheers,
Tom

Try RAFM, Platoon 20, Wartime miniatures and Underfire miniatures. Platoon 20 and RAFRM have extensive 20mm lines including USMC and Us Army
